What I believe more than anything else about parenting is that whatever works best for your family is what’s best for your family. Truly, “If Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.”
On the Attachment Mama site, you will find information about breastfeeding, co-sleeping, baby-wearing, empathetic parenting and — a subject oft forgotten when diving into Attachment Parenting (AP) — self care! The latter subject is one that I personally shelved for my first three years of motherhood because I thought it was necessary in order to meet my babies’ needs. I continue to explore ways to attend to better care for myself while ensuring the well-being of my children.
I will share my trials and triumphs as an AP mama and occasionally shake things up a bit and let the muse dictate a subject that may have nothing at all to do with parenting. My posts have been published in the Attachment Parenting International blog, API Speaks and Pathways Magazine.
About me? I am happily married to one of the world’s best Dads. I feel so fortunate to have him as my partner in life. I helped him raise my step-daughter through her teenage years and we have two more daughters together, now ages 6 and 4. Each daughter has enriched my life in ways so deep I find hard to put it into words. Ah Motherhood.
Since my girls were born, I’ve gone from part-time Work-At-Home-Mom, to full-time Stay-At-Home-Mom to now full-time working mom. With my varied experiences I hope I can offer a perspective that empathizes with other mothers regardless of their choice to be at home or not.
